Printer paper feed wheel rubber band is broken

I have a Samsung ML 1610 printer. The plastic wheel that feeds the paper has a ~1 inch rubber band around it that grabs the paper and feeds it into the printer. This rubber piece has cracked and fallen off. I'd like to replace it if I can find a source for the part. Also if instruction on how to replace it is available, I'd like to get that as well. Thanks for you time.

I had the exact sazme problem above and managed to successfully fix the probelm using an old mountain bike inner tube. I removed the cover to gain access to the paper feeder and removed it by first moving the white retaining clip on the right hand side towards the centre. Usign a flat headed screw driver I then freed this end from the black housing. Then, noting the orientation of the bar I then gently pulled it out of the gearing procket at the left hand side. This freed the bar from the printer. To get the required thickness of rubber I used four 2cm pieces cut from the inner tube and put them in place of the broken rubber. Re-assembled and worked first time and ever since. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem. To remove the rubber band, I had to remove a plastic housing that keeps the band in place. It's a bit difficult, but I managed to without breaking anything with two small flat point screwdrivers. I couldn't find any original replacement part, so I looked for something similar in the market. The rubber has to be really soft to pick up the paper, also a reason why it cracks a lot. If the rubber is flat, then try to use fine sandpaper on it to give it some texture. clean it well, so it won't mess up the paper. Put the rubber band on the housing and clip it on. This should end with all the paper jams and weird noises. The job is easier done, if you remove the housing of the printer (six screws). Never use brute force. If it doesn't come out, there's something that you're doing wrong. Be patient, so you won't break anything. Good luck!

My Samsung laser printer ML-2510 keep wont stop running (two lights are blinking same time) until I manually turn off the switch.


After removing the pickup rubber (and not removing the rubber band from it's plastic drum) I cut a thick piece of card stock paper the width of the rubber band and slid it under the rubber. I thought it would make it contact the paper with more force and it worked great.

Jammed paper Samsum ML1610


Take down the front cover, pull the toner cartridge out and pull the paper to remove it. Check the plastic wheel that feeds the paper (use a flashlight). It has a rubber band that might be broken. Replace it if necessary.

The paper has jammed in my ML-1610 printer.


The paper jams mostly, because the rubber band that feeds the paper to the printer is broken/split. Check the rubber band. It's located within the plastic wheel that feeds the paper.

Laser printer ml 2010, paper pull in problems


I also have the ML-2010R and I also had the paper feed problem. with warnings about paper jam around toner cartridge.
After a bit of reading and people mentioning the big roller that picks up the sheet of paper and that it needs replacement; I decided to carefully try to clean that rubber roller.
I used a brush and medical alcohol to clean the roller. After letting the roller dry I put in some paper and tried to print again and for me it works like a charm!
